Default Pop Up Notifications?

I rebooted my computer today for a clean install cause I've been having some connection problems and it has been running fine but I got a blue screen while playing a game. The blue screen really wasn't a problem it's the second one I've gotten in about half of a year with the pc. Anyway, I start up the PC and everythings running fine and I get this pop up saying go to <insert website here> and download this file urgent your computer has just recovered from a serious problem and needs to have this regestry program to scan for whatever. I sat here waiting for one to give exact words but it's not coming up. Anyway I went to the site and began to download it just thinking it was what it said it was, then I get another same exact thing different wording and a different website and realize it was something I've seen before, but Nod32 didn't pick it up as a virus, what do I do to fix these?

delete whatever you downloaded and updat Nod32 and run a virus scan. if it doesnt pickup anything then go back into the game and try to stress your hardware. sometims the OS will just write something to the wrong sector in the RAM which will casue the BSOD. if it does come up again post what its says here

If you didn't install a lot of stuff, I would just reformat again. It wouldn't hurt to try other software like Ad-Aware and Avast.

Sounds like the messenger service to me, im guessing you havent installed SP2 yet or it would be disabled. Goto admin tools > services and disable the messenger service by right clicking it and going to properties.
